Rockfax Description
Start with both hands on a handrail at the back of the cave. Move rightward on good holds to the lip of the roof and make a hard, blind move to a hold on the right face. Move up a slight rib and gain a good ledge high on the right. © Rockfax

Good fun. Went up the face - might try coming round the lip into the groove some time too.

Had tried a bit last year but couldn't remember the moves so I claim a flash. Cheers to some random guys for the beta. Soft.

Line in new guide is different to description. So did both versions first go...quality problem either way, groove makes it better and harder though!

Didn't think the move round the lip was that hard

Took a lot longer than Lightning Strike, I think fatigue was well and truly kicking in!
